Lovely story

At times this book really tugged at heartstrings. Others it was witty and funny. Either way a thoroughly enjoyable read.

A lovely story which I enjoyed, although as other reviewers have commented not historically correct, for instance the time the heroine spent alone with the Duke, and time spent alone with the Duke and his 2 male friends and brother, as well as the Dukes inappropriate touching of Victoria (the heroine) The way Victoria was treated by her family, other people and latterly by the Duke (until he got his act together!) was quite sad as she was a lovely girl
I look forward to other books by this author

Enjoyable historic romance

Plenty of laughs and tears along the way. The duke finally wakes up and makes Victoria his bride. The baddies finally get their just rewards. The book grabs you from the start and you just have to finish it. Haven't read this author before but will look for other books by her.

Discovering this book was a very pleasant surprise! I’ve not heard of this author let alone read any of her books. I really enjoyed the story and relationship that built up between Andres and Ria. As a book lover myself, the whole idea of romance in the library is great! A nice little gem of a book.

Cute romance

This was a great read. I loved Andres and Ria. The way their relationship professed was sweet. Andres’ temporary idiocy was frustrating but I loved him regardless. Ria was lovable all the way.

Brilliant book

A good read, easy characters to follow. Plot is simple and concise. Nice touches here and there. A good set up for future books or series.

Reviews say... historically inaccurate...true but it actually doesn't take away the story! The library gives the book a beauty and the beast feel and the sexy scenes are! ...more

Miss Victoria Sutton, wallflower and avid reader hears about Andres, Duke of Northumberland’s extensive library and strikes up a deal to organise his collection in exchange for the licence to borrow books.

The friendship develops. They play chess. He meets her horrid family, she meets his grandmother etc... There are a few twists and turns and a big HEA at the end.

Overall this was a great idea and a good read. I loved the idea of a book worm getting to know someone through a shared love of book
Come on...

Why?? Why?? Why??

This one is a bit too historically inaccurate for me. Yes, dukes had several privileges but randomly hugging a woman? Or that woman staying at his house for hours at times unchaperoned? And his servants being so loyal that there is no gossip, that that woman isn't ruined? Yeah, sure...

Plus, some of the scenes just seemed like scenes you would find in romance novels nowadays... They definitely can't be found in traditional regency novels and really don't have a place t

Need Basic Grammar Work

Misspellings, incorrect word use and just plain bad grammar are enough to annoy a reader. But the killer is the abandonment of any pretense to Regency correctness. Sitting on a man’s lap while he plays cards with friends sounds like a tavern wench, not a poor but respectable girl. Using first names right away was never done. It was even rare for married couples. A duchess might have influence in the ton,but could definitely not stop all gossip about her companion and grand

ok read but don't expect a historical novel. There are actual crossings out so editing is a big issue as well. ...more

The Duke’s library is a quick read. I enjoyed it for the most parts but the ending confused me. It felt like there should have been another chapter but it just ended. It wasn’t a cliffhanger or anything like that but it’s like the author put half an epilogue. It was weird. Aside from that the characters were nice and the story was cute.
